    Wrong key

    By changing just one letter of each word in the example and then re-arranging the words, you could form a popular phrase:
    <hr>Example: <big>Mob She Born In </big>becomes... <big><font color=blue>C</font color=blue>ob <font color=blue>T</font color=blue>he <font color=blue>C</font color=blue>orn <font color=blue>O</font color=blue>n </big>or... Corn On The Cob .<hr>
    See what you can do with these word sets. Caution: It's not always the first letter that needs work...


    1. <LI>is she soon mad
      <LI>ten if she slit
      <LI>fill heals doll
      <LI>but stop on link
      <LI>cut on dear rear
      <LI>by now so on do me
      <LI>tumble sat pit
      <LI>is live at barge
      <LI>cars hate malls
      <LI>four got in line
      <LI>is ill ale
      <LI>she done wider
      <LI>of alike dear

    Re: Wrong key

    Well allright. Everything looks good. Now we're left with 5 and 6. You'll kick yourself for not getting #6 sooner. Here's a hint for #5 if you want it...

    Hint. <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #000000; font-weight: bold"><font color=yellow>In #5's solution, two of the words are the same.</font color=yellow></span hi>

    5. <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #000000; font-weight: bold"><font color=yellow>wear in wear out</font color=yellow></span hi>
    I think that is the most likely answer, but...

    There is a bootleg live CD from the group Rush called <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #000000; font-weight: bold"><font color=yellow>hear in hear out</font color=yellow></span hi>
    There is a drinking game called <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #000000; font-weight: bold"><font color=yellow>bear in bear out</font color=yellow></span hi>
